I'm a disgusting person.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Caleb Official byArianaOrner

Official full body portrait of Caleb Widogast, by Ari.[art 2]

Caleb has blue eyes and reddish-brown hair.[7] Caleb's long coat hides two holstered heirloom books, one on either side.[8] Caleb's arms and hands are bandaged. Caleb has a soft German accent. [9]

When Caleb first appeared on Critical Role, he was filthy, unshaven, and had messy hair. He had slept in his filthy travel clothes, including a long coat.[7] After meeting the adventurers that would later become the Mighty Nein, Caleb visited an expensive bathhouse in Trostenwald, but he did not clean his clothes nor wash himself from the neck upward.[10] After arriving in Zadash, Enchanter Pumat Sol cleaned Caleb with magic consistent with the spell Prestidigitation, and it marked the first time the Mighty Nein witnessed a clean Caleb—which upset Nott.[11] Caleb smeared mud on his face when Jester demeaned the amount of money his parents made.[12]

Personality Edit

Caleb is reserved, not wanting to draw too much attention to himself nor his companion Nott.[13] Caleb shows little interest in the secrets of people besides Nott, hoping to avoid answering questions about himself.[14] Caleb's generally dour and isolated manner morphs into an open and jubilant mood upon purchasing new books.[15] He does not consider himself to be remotely brave.[15]

Caleb possesses a deep self-loathing due to the circumstances of his parents' death. He believes that he is fully responsible despite being magically beguiled and the reassurances of both Nott and Beauregard that he was not to blame, he neither wants nor accepts their consolations. He does appear to want revenge against Trent Ikithon, however, having shown a gleeful mania at the thought following his admission of his past.

As a young boy Caleb was focused and persuasive, driven and eloquent, though later in life he used his charismatic personality more so to deceive people.[16]

Caleb is methodical, sometimes to a fault. He has painstakingly counted objects on multiple occasions, once using the length of counting to cheat a merchant [17] and even counting crossbow bolts as he removed them from his own chest.[18]

Caleb has very 'sticky fingers' when it comes to magical objects and will take anything magical if he thinks he can get away with it.

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Caleb is from a small town named Blumenthal near Rexxentrum.[19] Based on his ability to read Zemnian, this town may be in the Zemni Fields.[presumed] His father was a member of the Empire military.[20]

His mother and father were incredibly poor, to the point that they hadn't made 50 gold throughout their entire lives.[21]

Caleb told Nott that his village or family contemplated sending him to the Soltryce Academy when he was younger, but Caleb "fucked it" and no longer has a desire to attend.[22] This was not quite true--Caleb attended the Soltryce Academy at 15 (around 817 P.D.), and came under the tutelage of the abusive Trent Ikithon a year later. Trent had three students from Caleb's hometown (Caleb, Eodwulf, and Astrid[23]), one of whom Caleb fell in love with and all of whom executed dissidents for the Empire. When Caleb was around 17, as a test of his three students' loyalty, Trent modified their memories so they believed that their parents had betrayed the empire. The three killed their parents, but Caleb "broke" when he heard his parents' screams from inside their burning house. Caleb spent 11 years in an asylum, until a woman removed his fake memories. After that, he killed one of the guards, took a necklace to hide himself from Ikithon, and escaped; he hid from Trent for the next 5 years.[24] Caleb still has hopes not to let his parents down[25], but considers murdering them to be an unforgivable act on his part.[26]

Caleb stated that he does not currently have any children and that he didn't have children in the past.[18] However, he claims to have fallen in love with one of his fellow students at the Soltryce Academy.[26]

Sometime after Caleb's escape from the asylum, Nott and Caleb met in a small jail, which they escaped from together.[14] Caleb came up with their escape plan, which required Nott's help. Caleb used Frumpkin to bring a piece of wire into their cell, which Nott used to pick the lock. Caleb proceeded to set the jail on fire and scream for help. The guards promptly fled, and Caleb and Nott walked out of the jail together, staying together first out of convenience, but then for several months.[27]

Pre-Stream Edit

Nott saved Caleb's life before they met the rest of the Mighty Nein.[8] Nott blamed herself for their inability to stay in any place for long without getting into trouble. It was Caleb's idea to stay in Trostenwald to find new companions "to tag along with."[13]

Chapter 9 Edit

Trostenwald Edit

Caleb's general lack of hygiene attracted the attention of Jester. After revealing Nott's goblin nature in a social misunderstanding, Caleb and Nott eventually decided to spend the day with Jester, Beauregard, and Fjord before heading to the carnival that night.

Unlike Jester's group and Molly, Caleb was not under house arrest for the duration of the investigation into the events of the carnival--thus, he was able to move freely around the town as himself. Caleb eventually discovered a story about Kylre's specific demonic powers in the book Fiends of Folklore. Armed with this knowledge, the group tracked Kylre to Crookedstone Island and killed him. Afterwards, Caleb attempted to take sole responsibility for the kill, but circumstances forced the truth to come out instead. He used Fiends of Folklore and Kylre's death to persuade Lawmaster Norda that the husk attacks were not the fault of his burgeoning group. She let them off without penalty.

Before leaving Trostenwald, Caleb went to a bathhouse with Nott, where he sadly contemplated a burnt spellbook he had purchased in town. On the way out of town, he and Fjord recognized a kindred adult nature that the other members of the group lacked.

Alfield and the Gnolls Edit

Zadash: Beginnings Edit

Chapter 10 Edit

Zadash on Lockdown Edit

Caleb tried to identify the Beacon after the Mighty Nein's fight with Thuron. However, he was unwilling to cross the ominous threshold of further understanding, and did not fully identify it.

C2E13 Caleb beacon

Fan art of Caleb's dream with the Beacon, by Megzilla87.[art 3]

After the group released Thuron, Caleb was instrumental in regaining possession of the Beacon, using a disguise and Friends to take it from a guard. That night, as he slept in a cellar under The Leaky Tap and guarded the Beacon, Caleb had a strange dream about possible future Calebs.

Caleb avoided answering any questions when the group interrogated Molly about his amnesia under a Zone of Truth.

Caleb hid the spellbook he found in Siff Duthar's laboratory from The Gentleman. The degree to which The Gentleman saw this as a betrayal on Caleb's part is unclear.

When Caleb fully identified the Beacon and embraced its power, he said to his parents that he hoped he wouldn't let them down. When Jester addressed Nott as Caleb's mother shortly afterwards, this greatly confused Caleb.

"Whispers of War" (2x18) Edit

In the Swamp Edit

Caleb and Beau disagreed about the best course of action when they found the bowl Calianna was searching for. Caleb thought they should interrogate Cali under some sort of guarantee that she would tell the truth, while Beau thought Caleb was being both rude and paranoid. Cali broke up the argument by positing that Caleb could simply use Suggestion to make her tell the truth. Caleb and Beau reconciled the next day, after some prodding from Fjord and Yasha.

Chapter 11 Edit

Chapter 12 Edit

Caleb, along with the rest of the Mighty Nein, stole the ship the Mist from the docks in Nicodranas. He suggested renaming it the "Shit" or the "Shittake," as mist in Zemnian is a word for "shit."[28] He gave the name "Phillip" as his pirate alias to Captain Avantika.[29] When the Mighty Nein joined the crew of the Squall-Eater, "Phillip" took on the role as apprentice navigator.[30]

Upon arriving at Darktow Isle, Caleb (along with the other members of the Mighty Nein) was automatically initiated into the ranks of the Revelry.[30] He was expelled from the Revelry after the fight with Avantika.[31]

Relationships Edit

Nott Edit

Caleb, more than once, mentioned that Nott had saved his life the day before the events of "Curious Beginnings" (2x01), and the two of them covered each other's expenses throughout their drinking escapades in Trostenwald and their trip to the Carnival.[32][33] In their first scene in Critical Role, Caleb and Nott shared a room together at the Nestled Nook Inn[34], and they roomed together multiple times thereafter.[35] Caleb stated that they're best when they work together.[8]

Over the months that they have been togther, Nott and Caleb have become reflexively protective of each other. When Caleb had the slightest impression that the other members of the Mighty Nein had figured out Nott's goblin identity, he said that she was a goblin, but that it was not a big deal.[8] Later, during the trial held by the notably anti-goblin Norda, Caleb stood between Nott and Norda and vouched for Nott's moral character.[10]

Nott intimated that she and Caleb had a number of practiced cons (confidence tricks) for procuring coin, including "The Money Pot", "Rat Food", "Prince and the Pauper", and "Spider Eyes".[8]

When asked about their relationship, Caleb stated that he considers Nott to be like a little sister to him.[18] On the other hand, Nott considers herself to be a mother figure for Caleb, though she has not told him this.[36]

Jester Lavorre Edit

Jester was friendly but blunt toward Caleb when they first met. The first thing she ever said to him was that he smelled really bad and that he should take a bath.[8]

When Jester returned from the Pillow Trove and revealed that she had not gotten the care package from her mother, Caleb offered her some of his gold to cheer her up, but she declined, and the two began to quarrel over what constituted "a lot of money". Caleb claimed 50 gold was more money than his family had ever made, to which Jester responded that that basically had been her daily allowance growing up; frustrated with her inability to be happy with the money they did have, Caleb smeared mud over his face and then stormed off, though Jester did later apologise for disrepecting his upbringing.[37]

Jester was not very respectful when Caleb talked to his parents while touching the Beacon[25], later mocking him for it to others.[26] Caleb worries most about how Jester would react to his past if she learned of it.[38]

Beauregard Edit

Caleb an Beau

Fan art of Caleb and Beau reconciling, by Hugo Cardenas.[art 5]

Caleb is impressed with Beauregard and her physical fitness.[39] Without having witnessed a battle that happened before Caleb met them, he credited the success of Jester, Beau, and Fjord against the giant snake to Beau's "guns".[13]

She is probably the person he trusts most after Nott. This is evidenced by the fact that he revealed his dark past to her. Caleb has mentioned some of his trust stems from the fact that they are both "empire kids".

Fjord Edit

Upon joining forces, Fjord and Caleb quickly developed a collaborative working relationship.[10] They both have the ability to magically change their appearance.[40] As an aspiring magic-user himself, Fjord has complimented Caleb on his spells[41] and sought his advice on arcane matters.[42] Caleb admires Fjord's mind and his ability to get things done.

In "The Diver's Grave" (2x44), Caleb helped Fjord investigate Dashilla's storm summoning altar in exchange for an unspecified future favor.

Frumpkin Edit

C2E6 CalebFrumpkin

Fan art of Caleb and Frumpkin together, Frumpkin in sparrow form, by Megzilla87.[art 6]

Caleb is fond of Frumpkin. Outside of times when he uses Frumpkin to advance his goals, Caleb treats Frumpkin like a domestic cat, frequently showing him physical affection.[43] Caleb seems to know that Frumpkin prefers to be in cat form, but is willing to change him to other forms when necessary.[44] Frumpkin is named after Caleb’s childhood cat of the same name.[45]

Though Frumpkin has died on multiple occasions, this doesn't seem to bother Caleb or Frumpkin. Caleb has stated that Frumpkin finds dying to be a minor inconvenience.[46]

Mollymauk Tealeaf Edit

When Caleb dissociated after burning a man to death in a gnoll lair, Mollymauk doused the flames, slapped Caleb in the face, encouraged him to deal with those feelings later, asked if he was alright, and then gave him a kiss on the forehead.[47] When the party later pressed Caleb on his dissociation and he pointed out that it was a traumatizing experience, Molly suggested using alcohol.[18]

Yasha Edit

Caleb likes Yasha due to their similar personalities and mutual dislike of, and uncomfortableness with, close contact.[48] After asking her for advice regarding social situations, Yasha listed off a few things that she believed would make people like Caleb more (which he wrote down), and shaved his face with her sword after Caleb mentioned that he missed being clean shaven. Caleb asked if this made them friends, to which Yasha said that it did.

Trivia Edit

  • Caleb's intelligence is one of the highest for any player character, tied with Percy, Lyra, and Lillith.
  • The name Caleb is Hebrew for "dog" ("kelev") and "whole-hearted" ("collev").
  • The name Widogast is an Old German name composed of the elements "witu" ("wood") and "gast" ("stranger, guest").[citation needed]
    • From Old and Middle, gast (also spelled ghast due to associations with ghost) means "to frighten", or "soul", "spirit", or "breath."
    • From a Proto-Ino-European origin, it can also mean "anger, agitation."
    • From Old French, it can mean "destruction" or "destroyed; ravaged; decimated", and is an alternate form of wast, which the word waste is related to or originates from.
  • Brian Wayne Foster described Caleb as "Homeless Troy Baker".[126] After Caleb was cleaned by Pumat Sol, Brian began calling him "Basic Cable Troy Baker".[citation needed]
  • When Liam joked about Caleb emphasizing the Mold Earth cantrip, Laura responded that Caleb smells like "moldy earth".[127]
  • When Liam speaks the Zemnian language as Caleb, he actually speaks German. Because of this, Matt now uses a German accent for Zemnian characters.
  • Caleb came up with the adventuring party's name, the Mighty Nein, when Watchmaster Bryce Feelid needed the group's name for paperwork.[128]
  • When Caleb cast knock in "Within the Nest" the spell did not create a loud booming sound as described by the spell. It's likely this was an oversight by Matt.[129][130]
  • Before Caleb spent a decade in an asylum, he was an evocation wizard.[131]
